The Good Samaritan Reviews
Laura is a mom, she is a wife, she has a 'picture perfect' life...she also works at End of the Line. End of the Line is a phone center for people that have reached the end of hope. They have no good days (that they can see).
You would think this would make Laura a good woman wouldn't you?
You would be wrong. Because Laura is a batshit crazy woman.
She uses her job at End of the Line to find her special people, the ones that have no will to go on. Then she talks them into killing themselves with he ...more
The Good Samaritan by John Marrs is a well-written, dark and disturbing thriller.
While most suspense novels reveal little from the beginning and build up the story up to a surprise ending, Marrs sets the game from the beginning of the novel by introducing anti-heroine Laura and her deadly motives.
Laura works for End of the Line, a charity organisation where people ring in their moments of despair. She is pretty much like a nocturnal animal on hunt, looking out for suicidal people and offering t ...more
This book is so dark and devious I had to follow it up with a much lighter read when I finished. It's not really graphic, so don't worry about that - it just takes you deep inside some twisted brains, and just when you think you know what's going to happen next, you're dead wrong.
Laura is a survivor, she beat cancer. Laura is a devoted wife and mother to her three children. Laura bakes lovely treats to share with her co-workers. Laura likes to encourage people to kill themselves.
Abusing her po ...more
Trigger alerts include suicide and depression. If you are feeling suicidal I’d encourage you to go to www.befrienders.org and find the details of an organisation in your area that can help. Helpline volunteers are truly remarkable people who deserve way more credit than they receive!
There’s a visceral quality to John Marrs’ writing that I love! I read the blurb and immediately judged Laura. I mean, there you are, at your wits end and you call End of the Line. A woman named Laura picks up the ph ...more
Wow, what a chilling thriller! This book was very suspenseful and had me on the edge of my seat. I have to admit it was a tad disturbing since I have had to use the suicide crisis line in my past but it was still a highly enjoyable book. This book made me think and made the hairs on the back of my neck stick straight up! Definitely recommend this psychological thriller!
EXCERPT: I listened with blissful satisfaction right until her final breath. That's the one sound that matters to me above all others. . . that one precious moment when someone breathes their last, then slips away. People in pain, like Chantelle, place themselves in my hands because I understand them better than anyone else in the world. I know more about what they need than their brothers, sisters, parents, spouses, best friends or children. I understand them because I know what's best for them ...more
this book was beyond infuriating - im still angry just thinking about it. i had thought about putting this down multiple times but, for some reason, i just had to know what happened. silly me. there was a slight twist that i appreciated, but goodness me, i could not stand the main character.
Trigger warning: Suicide
"I will save them from themselves. That is what I am: a saviour of lost souls."
If you are looking psychological thriller, something really dark, controversial, well written and uncomfortably captivating, this is definitely the book for you. This will be a book you will NEVER forget. Although I haven't read a John Marrs book before, I really enjoyed his writing and this novel and will be seeking more novels from him in the future.
Volunteers at End of the Line hotline are t ...more
